Al Gore told us how to save the world

The ex-vice pres­i­dent of the USA, and cur­rent eco-war­rior, is back with a new film about cli­mate change doom. Here’s how to help pre­vent ev­ery­thing from melt­ing

NME - - FRONT PAGE -

GIVE MONEY TO GOOD PEO­PLE

“Knowl­edge is power. It can give you the con­fi­dence to win the con­ver­sa­tions about cli­mate change. Go to the movie. Get the book. One hun­dred per cent of the prof­its from both go to The Cli­mate Re­al­ity Pro­ject, which trains more ac­tivists around the world.”

DON’T VOTE

FOR CLI­MATE CHANGE DE­NIERS

“Use your rights as a cit­i­zen to ex­ert in­flu­ence on the can­di­dates who ask for your vote. Show them that you are deadly se­ri­ous, and if they’re on the right side you’ll sup­port them. But if they’re on the wrong side, you won’t rest un­til you de­feat them.”

TALK TO YOUR PALS

“Win­ning the con­ver­sa­tion is im­por­tant be­cause the his­tory of all great so­cial move­ments teaches that when the con­ver­sa­tion is won in civil so­ci­ety, that’s when the laws be­gin to change. Nor­mal­is­ing the fact that we have to make a col­lec­tive de­ci­sion to solve this cri­sis is truly im­por­tant. We have a duty to con­vince our friends, too. If you care about the fu­ture of this planet, then show you are se­ri­ously com­mit­ted. And do it with pas­sion.”
